The People Elephants face the Rwandan side in the Caf Confederation Cup quarter-final and the forward is eagerly looking forward to it.

Enyimba striker Sunday Adetunji says his side will not underrate Rayon Sports after being drawn against the Rwandan side in the quarter-finals of the CAF Confederation Cup.

The People’s Elephants progressed to the knockout stages as winners of Group C and were pitched against the Kigali based club at the draw ceremony held in Cairo, Egypt on Monday.

Following Monday’s draw, the former Abia Warriors man is unperturbed about the outcome and is assuring that they will put up a convincing display to negotiate past the Rwandans.

And further revealed his immediate ambition is to keep 'improving' in the bid to inspire Usman Abdullah's men to their first continental glory since 2004.

“It was a fair draw for us, though we really did not worry about who we were going to meet,” Adetunji told Goal.

“We are in the competition to win and must expect and also be ready for any opponent. The most important thing for us is to prepare well, improve on our previous performances and fight to win.
